Both activities on quality improvement of the environment and-a willingness to understand these processes are conditional on possessing reliable information that can be obtained from analytics and environmental monitoring. At present, analytics and environmental monitoring are among the most dynamically developing branches of chemical analysis. The pursuit of getting the complex information on environmental quality leads to developing new methods and analytical techniques. Previous studies and own experience entitle to present the most important tendencies in the development of analytics and environmental monitoring. These trends can be classified into two basic groups:

- development of new methodical procedures,

- new achievements in construction of measuring instruments (instrumentation).

This paper presents the most important developments in both trends observed in chemical analysis.
